Re: [BUG] Wait for Heating at Extruder Switch doesn't work

on some printer (for example raisespro 2) both extruders should be hot before switching :) But in Both cases (Current & Proposed), the Switch is done First: 'T0' to switch, then setting the new temperatures. And I selected 'Marlin' as the Firmware, not Raise3D. So that requirement doesn't apply

Re: [BUG] Wait for Heating at Extruder Switch doesn't work

OK! I get it now. The description on that item was a little vague. I thought if you unchecked it, it would not do any kind of waiting. But looking at the gCode I see it does to an M109 wait before using the extruder. But one last little nit-pick: It waits for the new extruder to fully heat before co...

That's disappointing. It would be great if your developers could extend this across layers.

Re: [BUG] Wait for Heating at Extruder Switch doesn't work

The option is designed for E2's Reprap Firmware. E2 firmware has preheating waiting preset when nozzle switches so there's no extra waiting code needed in Gcode file. If there's similar setup in your printer's firmware, the option is not needed to be checked. As far as I know, Marlin does not have ...

Re: [BUG] Wait for Heating at Extruder Switch doesn't work

Here is an example gCode, data and idea files illustrating this BUG.

Re: [BUG} Preheat Inactive Extruder failed

Here's gCode, data and idea files illustrating this BUG

Because the extruder switch happens at a layer change, there is no Preheat of the Extruder because Ideamaker doesn't look beyond the current layer for Extruder changes.

[BUG] Wait for Heating at Extruder Switch doesn't work

I have this set up for my IDEX printer: No Wait.PNG But the GCode produced does not have any M109 commands in it at an extruder switch.

[BUG} Preheat Inactive Extruder failed

This has worked before, but for some reason its not working now: No Preheat.PNG Dual Extruder. Starting printing with T1 and T0 cooled down to 150 as directed. Layer 20 (19 base 0) was to switch to T0 and preheat it 60 seconds beforehand. But it did not. This gCode snipit shows that it started heati...

Recommended Standby Temperatures for PLA, PETG, TPU?

So I got a Dual Extruder Printer and am setting up IdeaMaker for slicing. I understand its not a good idea to keep an Idle Extruder at full Printing Temperature as it can char the filament, heat-creep and clog the nozzle, etc.. But I can't find any recommended temperatures for Standby. I regularly p...

Re: No Skirt Printed in Dual Extruder Mode

I think I found the 'problem'. While the object was actually touching the bed, IdeaMaker didn't really think it was. I mean, it printed fine as it was, just no skirt. Once I 'Put Selected Models on Platform' (which didn't move anything), the skirt appeared upon re-slicing.

No Skirt Printed in Dual Extruder Mode

I can't seem to get a skirt to print with dual extruders no matter which extruder I choose to print it.

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

Ver. 4.1.1.5050

Thanks!

Re: Feature Request: Change Temperature when Slowing Print Speed

Are you looking for a setting to decrease temperature, printing speed and increase fan speed when single layer printing time shorter than certain amount? Basically, Yes. The current setting sets the minimal layer time to 15 seconds. And when that limit is reached, you can set a Minimal Print Seed a...

Feature Request: Change Temperature when Slowing Print Speed

I have the need to change (lower) the print temperature for some filaments when the print speed is lowered via the 'Cooling' tab. Otherwise the filament tends to 'boil' in the nozzle as it sits in there too long and then creates tiny holes in the print. Currently, I do this manually by looking at th...

Feature Request: Layer Height Chart should show actual Layer Heights

It would be super nice, and less confusing if the "Layer Height (mm)" chart showed the actual layer heights used in the slicing rather than the generic min to max in 10 increments. LayerHeight Graph.PNG I realize this might result in a very long chart for certain slicing settings, but it w...

Re: How to set Adaptive Layer Height Increment?

Nevermind. I figured it out. the Colored graph on the left is just reference. It's doesn't reflect the actual layer heights used in the gcode. I sure wish it did!! Once I changed the 'Adaptive Layer Height Sampling Step" to 0.025, all the layer heights are falling on whole number microsteps. Co...

How to set Adaptive Layer Height Increment?

I've looked through all the settings and can't find this. For Adaptive Layer heights, IdeaMaker is setting the various heights in 0.02mm increments: LayerHeight Increments.PNG You can see it goes from 0.100 to 1.120 to 1.140, etc. My printer's steps/mm are 160 which results in 19.2 microsteps for a ...
